The Berger king

The Berger king

Sky sports is reporting that we are plotting a 'shock' move to bring Patrik Berger - the man who scored our first ever premiership goal - back to Fratton Park.

The veteran, who has seen his time at Villa ravaged by injury was thought to be preparing to move back to his native Czech Republic but the 'reports' claim that Harry Redknapp is prepared to 'gamble' on our former star and offer him a 1 and a half year contract.

However Villa, who have one of the smallest squads in the top flight, maybe in England full stop are unwilling to let him leave at the moment according to his agent Pavel Paska who told ISM Football: 'Aston Villa don't want to hear about releasing him at present'.

Even with this, it is thought that we will be trying to tie up a deal in the next 10 days.

Paska, who also acts as agent for Adam Hlousek and Libok Kozak has also confirmed that the teenagers are on trial with Pompey and if they impress he has hinted that they could stay longer, maybe to be joined by their fellow countryman: 'if they impress there, it is not ruled out that they could stay there for a longer time'.

Berger is one of many footballers that should never have been allowed to leave Pompey when he did, but that was Alain Perrin for you fellas...

I am pretty sure that someone mentioned something about us making a move for Berger in a comment recently - with it said that Villa wanted Jamie Ashdown in return?

A guy mentioned this on the Sky Sports Transfer Forum last week and I thought it was another of those clowns who had spotted C Ronaldo in Plymouth with his name on the back of a Plymouth Shirt! Anything in this?

This could be doable, but it would have to be a swap deal, because we can't afford to lose any more players. If Matty Taylor was still there, that might have been ideal. Oh well.

Can't see the point of this one. Yes he was a good player but nothing that special now that would make a real difference.

He is good down the left, and would provide cover for niko.

I don't personally see why you need him, he isn't the player he was, but he is a player that we would let go.

WE DON'T NEED PLAYERS OF LESSER QUALITY LIKE THIS - ARE YOU MAD? PERHAPS WE COULD RE-SIGN KARADIS, MAYBE? OR MORNAR? BONUS IF WE STILL HAVE HIM. SHAME DERBY GOT TO LOREN ROBERT BEFORE WE DID. WHO'S ANDY COLE WITH NOW?

Now Milan Baros is a decent player who could do a good job of work for us. Always thought he played well when Liverpool visited Fratton. And has something to still prove. Rather have Guiza though.

He would give us cover down the left but he is 34 now and appears to be used by Villa as an impact player from the bench. Must be someone younger about worth a try?

well said et_tu, good player previously but could be too much like covering old ground, I say move forward sign new players and drive the squad forward, saying that I will now contradict myself, I just read something about a 9mil bid for crouch... now that would be a welcome return!

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
